Budweiser, globally known as the “King of Beers” has launched the biggest online DJ search we’ve seen to date. The Kings of the Decks, pits DJs in a battle to determine who has the skills to play on the Ultra South Africa stage in February 2020. Judged by Sabelo Mtshal; is widely known to most as DJ Sabby, who at the age of 14 fell in love with radio and kicked off his own career through Love Life’s Radio Y’s programme. DBN Gogo, a familiar name across the party scene in the country is another one of the judges, her sonic signature being a harmonious blend of commercial and underground house music that is high-energy and keeps the dance floor lit. Oscar Mdlongwa aka Oskido is a household name when it comes to Kwaito, a true pioneer in the rise of subsequent dance and house genres, and the last of the Kind of The Decks judges.
The top 10 finalists have been chosen and in true Budweiser fashion they embody the fun, risk taking, on your hustle and making the most out of life spirit of the brand. They are DJ Zelco, Nomfleek, Nkanyezi Kubheka, Beetz DJ, Joni Dip, Desiree, SI Jones, DJ Banze, Lebza Da Villian and DJ Candii who is our very own new cover star on Bubblegum.
